Control Ultimate Edition Delayed Into 2021 On PS5 And Xbox Series X

The next-gen version of Remedy's trippy action shooter has slipped into next year.


Control is getting upgraded for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, but players looking to revisit the title with an improved frame rate and ray tracing on consoles will need to wait longer. Developer Remedy Entertainment has announced that the game, expected during the next-gen launch period, will arrive in "early 2021".

No exact date has been announced beyond this, with Remedy tweeting that more time is needed to ensure that the final release is as "awesome" as they want it to be. The Ultimate Edition contains the original game and both of its expansions, The Foundation and AWE.

This next-gen version is expected to be on par with the PC version. The game, which has been a showcase ray tracing title on PC, runs okay on base PS4/Xbox One systems--but there's a clear room for improvement.

Now Playing: Control | Best Games Of 2019

Control: Ultimate Edition is already available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The next-gen update has been controversial, because it will only be available as a free upgrade for players who bought the Ultimate Edition on PS4/Xbox One.

This means that players who bought the game and the DLC earlier will miss out, or need to buy the game again. This is particularly strange as some Xbox One players who own the base game and DLC were briefly given the Ultimate Edition.

Control recently came to Nintendo Switch via cloud gaming. This version received a 7/10 in GameSpot's review.
